Snapshot:

A new math bag game has been added! Students will be using cards to practice multi-digit subtraction. It is a 2 player game, so please do join your child in practicing their math skills.

In this example, player 1 will subtract 76-8 and player 2 will subtract 87-9. The player with the larger difference will take all six cards. I suggest practicing with two digit and three digit numbers.

Weekly Focus

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Here is our focus for the week —

Reading: This week we will continue to work on informational text. Students are developing their skills in using context clues to identify the meaning of words. We are also going to begin looking into text features. This is exciting as we get to use our science books to develop these skills! 🙂

• RI3.4 Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases
• RI3.5 Use text features and search tools to locate information relevant to a given topic

Writing: We began working on an informational piece “how to keep our teeth clean” using informational articles and videos to help us develop our writing. Students even began citing evidence in their writing!! 🙂 We will continue to work on this throughout the week.

• W3.2 Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly

Math: We will continue work on strengthening our skills in adding and subtracting three digit numbers through multi-step story problems. This is an important concept that students are working very hard on mastering. Additional practice and support at home is greatly appreciated!!

• 3.NBT.2 Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction
• 3.OA.8 Solve two-step problems using the four operations (our focus is on addition and subtraction)

Science: We continue our investigations on water and climate. Students will be participating in engaging hands on activities, this week we will be testing water at various temperatures! Science also covers many of the reading standards we are currently covering or will cover in the future.

• ESSS2.C The roles of water in Earth’s surface processes
• water is found in the oceans, rivers, lakes, and ponds. Water exists as solid ice and in liquid form.
• ESS2.D Weather and Climate
• climate describes a range of an area’s typical weather conditions and the extend to which these conditions vary over years.

Social Studies: We continue our study on Michigan. This week we will focus on the theme of movement and regions. We will have a social studies test within the next two weeks. A study guide will be coming home soon.

• G4.0.3 Describe some of the current movement of goods, people, jobs or information to, from, or within Michigan and explain reasons for the movements.
• G.2.0.1 Use a variety of visual materials and data sources to describe ways in which Michigan can be divided into regions.
